Auxilary Materials for Fuzzy Automata and Life
by Cliff Reiter

These materials are meant to supplement the manuscript Fuzzy Automata and Life. Fuzzy automata were studied in [1]. The fuzzy logic which they used for their experiments, and which we call Logic 1, were or1=min(1,x+y) & and=*. Here we show those automata on a random window in a fuzzy background. We also look at an animation of the evolution of the fuzzy Game of Life based upon our Logic 5: or5=gcd and and5=lcm.
